Mexico City Jaguars
The Mexico City Jaguars originated as the Tenochitlan Jaguars, one of the founding franchises of the MLB. Continuously active since 1492, the Jaguars, along with the Istanbul Ottomans, are one of the oldest teams in professional bloodbath. In 1521, the team was reorganized and renamed the Mexico City Jaguars.
Current Status of the Team
The Mexico City Jaguars were at the height of their fame in the mid-nineteenth century, reaching the World Series several times. After a period of decline marked by infighting among the owners, the Jaguars finally slowly started to rise again in the late 1920s after a management shake up led by the PRI Group. Current rivals include the Guadalajara Maquiladoras and the Los Angeles Riot.
